Great value, 20 min from downtown!

  • 5 of 5

Joan and Steve’s house was perfect for our party of 6 coming in town for a Badger Game. The house was clean, comfortable and added a little country charm. While it would’ve been nice to walk from our place to downtown and Camp Randall, if you have to drive anyway, what’s the difference between 10 and 20 min? Great value! I’d recommend it to any future guests!

Perfect balance of country and city

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with the rental of this property. It was so well furnished with whatever we needed whether it was kitchen, bath, laundry, sleeping accommodations, entertainment etc. The purpose of our visit was for a mini family reunion with my 93 year old father. The setting was such that everyone felt comfortable and we were able to enjoy the beautiful deck, backyard and prairie. Joan and Steve could not have been more gracious and accommodating hosts. They contributed to making this a very memorable time for my family. Thank you.
